Well this post doesn’t have much to do with my illness but my life isn’t just about my illness so I thought I’d try talking about something different. Also enjoying a simpler life enhances my joy of simple things.
Like – my cat, Flyman (his previous owner worked in the theatre – what is a flyman? ).
Flyman is very food focused. He’s pretty well behaved but from time to time he sticks his head in a finished bowl or plate oF something that’s been left within his reach.
So, by accident, over the years I’ve discovered he’s very partial to (as in purrs like crazy and acts demented for):
- Heinz cream of tomato soup (other brands he’s not so keen on)
- Curry (the sauce mainly)
- Strawberry yogurt
- Dried figs
The dried figs is a recent and particularly disturbing discovery. My dad says Flyman also likes to eat cheese and crisps when he’s at their house.
I think he is all time favourite is the tomato soup. He goes crazy if we have it.
When he had to had some of his teeth removed a couple of years ago (from old age and not from eating rubbish I may add!) the vet told us not to feed him solid food for 24 hours. Give him some soup instead the vet said – a meat broth with the chunks sieved out.
Would he eat broth? No. Did he end up wth his own portion of tomato soup? Of course he did.
